for the money you would save wouldn't it be prudent to drive to NC for a new one, Parkliners have only been out for the last year or 2, I question whether you would save much by buying used

buying used

Prudent? I don't think so. Maybe easy and convenient.
Let me ask you some rhetorical questions. If I offered you a $100 dollar bill, would you take it? What if I offered you a bank bundle of ten $100 dollar bills? What if I offered you two thousand dollar bundles? Is saving $2000 on something that is almost new and something you want worth doing? OR...should I drive down to Parkliner an pay $20,000?
I live in PA where you pay 6% tax on stuff that needs a liscence plate. If I arrived home with my new Parkliner I would immediately hand the state $1200. If I bought used, the sales agreement might be , say, $8000 or $12000 or $4000. Who knows the possibilities.
I think buying used is worth it. I suspect you bought your casita used as I did. Sometimes we have the time to wait.

Hey man I didn't mean to put a burr under your saddle, your opening statement that said "we need a Parkliner" made it sound like you were about to loose you house and your last sentence in your answer says just the opposite "sometimes we have the time to wait", Just experience tells me you won't pay $20,000 for one with the required options you listed, and you also will be very lucky to save a bunch on a 1 or 2 year old Parkliner and there just aren't any that are older than that. Good luck in your search.

Steve,
I'm not sure you will find people that think the same way you may. I have paid my share of sales taxes on 6 new trailers over past 5 years, it's people that try to short change the system that caused the economic problem we all are facing. Let's not take the low road and keep everything above board.

If yer sayin' what I think yer sayin' about sales tax, Steve:

I don't know about your State, but many are putting a stop to lowball-price-on-the-receipt shenanigans by just going by book value on the unit.

Who knew "the gummint" had that kind of smarts!?!

THAT could actually work for buyers of all molded towables... if NADA is used

Steve, it certainly doesn't hurt to ask about someone selling a Parkliner. But, I wouldn't hold my breath... it may be a while...

Since Google came into bring I know a number of people who have attempted to short change the paying of taxes by having the seller write up a low ball sales receipt who have been caught out on it at the Border & at DMV when they went to licence it. These days they will Google for the original sales ad for what you purchased or look for ads for other trailers of the same make & age. What you *may* save in taxes isn't worth what you may pay if you get caught attempting to short change.

It may also be a long while before you find one that's as deeply discounted as you are hoping for. Fiberglass trailers are not like cars or stick trailers that are deeply discounted the moment they leave the lot.

Yeah there is no way your going to find a ParkLiner under 15k or so...especially not in the summertime. You might get lucky and get a good deal like I did... but not for the prices you mentioned. Being only out for 2 years dont expect low prices on an almost new Trailer... but hand me 190 $100 bills and I might sell mine...and Im almost local to ya lol
